How To Create A Timeless Fashion Style - Guest Post By Mia Taylor

It’s always fun to greet and incorporate the latest trends into your wardrobe, whether that’s getting the platform sandals, a glitzy dress or testing out the new velvet craze. But after all the fashion shows are done, and the next year brings something even more curious and fun, it might feel as if your wardrobe has become useless, and the famous statement arises – I have nothing to wear!
Then again, if you want your style to age like a fine wine, you should stick to several key fashion rules that will always stand the test of time, despite any new trends that come and go.

Patterns That Don’t Fade

I completely understand the need to color your entire collection Ultra Violet now, but as you’re putting aside your greenery jacket, tees and shorts, you do know that there’s a reason why certain shades and patterns work no matter the year, while others fade.
Stripes, animal prints, polka-dots and florals are always in, one way or another, while pastel and neutral shades can serve as the foundation of your style. That still leaves room for vibrant accent pieces and a few seasonal items in fun tones, so don’t hesitate to keep your eyes open for a vividly purple scarf!  

Style Beats Trends

As tempting as it may be to get a dozen sheer dresses in a multitude of bold colors, it’s highly likely that this time next year this particular trend will be replaced by another, more innovative or bold piece. But the streets will always be packed with jeans, crisp white shirts, classic Converse sneaks and aviators.
That is why a timeless capsule wardrobe needs its essentials, and in addition to the aforementioned items, consider a pair of classic black pumps, the famous LBD, and a coat that’s easy to pair with any outfit.

Formal Essentials

With those basic items in neutral colors, never again will you spend hours in the morning picking out what to wear to work, or to a coffee date; the choices will stare you in the face as soon as you open your closet.
But when there’s a formal occasion to consider, you need your go-to elegant pieces that are ideal for cocktail parties, various celebrations and formal dinners. That’s why ladies of timeless style rely on sophisticated evening dresses that bring out their best features and are easy to match with their favorite pair of heels.

Form-Fitting Versus Massive

Yes, an oversized knitted sweater is a timeless clothing item, but if you apply the same size principle to all your shopping decisions, you will probably find yourself feeling sloppy in a few years’ time. One of the key principles of style is choosing cuts and shapes that are neither too tight, nor too loose.
That way, you will always have comfortable, sleek apparel that flatters your figure without being too imposing or out-of-date.

Accessorize With Care

Little can go a long way when it comes to picking your favorite embellishments, and although having an entire assortment of baubles at your disposal may sound like a dream come true, it’s best to stick to classics.
A pearl necklace is every woman’s best friend for formal events, a timeless piece and a pair of sunglasses are a must, while a few rings, earrings and necklaces are a welcome addition to your collection, as long as they can be paired with your capsule wardrobe.

Red Lip Is All You Need

The golden rule of age-appropriate makeup is that you should strive to emphasize your natural beauty as much as possible, which means that you should rather focus on proper skincare before you rush to your makeup kit.
A touch of mascara, black eyeliner, some blush and a red lipstick are considered essentials, but just like with your wardrobe, there’s ample room to play with colors as long as they are balanced with your outfit.

Mind Your Feet

We’ve already covered those high-heeled pumps, but as for the rest of your footwear, lightweight sandals for the summer, flats for everyday errands, plain sneakers and ankle boots (although knee-high will work as well) will make your wardrobe complete.
The essence of timeless is in choosing comfort paired with beauty, so that all your options make you feel confident, free to move as you please and that they resonate with your character and charisma.
